In any event, with the school year starting up here TODAY...and us still surrounded by boxes, we'll be getting a late start....BUT I need to find a balance between settling in and carrying on with routines.
WEDNESDAY is Stacia's birthday - the day we count down more eagerly than Christmas. 😉 Even with our later than we thought closing date, we'd hoped to have things settled by her birthday. Today, I decided to take the day off and go shop for groceries (we'll have company this week), shop for a birthday, get my lab work done (it was due a week ago but I couldn't get away), visit the post office and we had to visit Fred Meyers for a few items that Walmart didn't have.
While Maria and I did this running, Michael and the boys painted the entry way. I think this ends the painting....all is fresh except a couple of rooms that weren't bad and a couple of closets that ARE BAD but I'll keep the doors closed until next spring. 😆

It was good for me to leave as the ladder came out. I.don't.want.to.know. 🙈
First cup of fresh mint tea from my plants. Cobie introduced me to this delicacy last month.
I miss some things about living in the RV - but I LOVE a bigger oven.
Yes, the dinner bell still works.
The kids played the Hobbit Adventure Board game. Stacia called it promptly at 9 p.m. They are trying to be quiet as CoRielle's room is below our table.
What a perfect little visitor to end the day....he's nearly 3 months old now.
